Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are they under any type of written lease or are they just living there month to month?
Have you given them any written notice to vacate?
Ok, if you are mother's POA and she doesn't want them to stay there, then you have the legal authority to evict anyone living there. Legally mother is their landlord and sister and brother are her tenants, the other person is a sub tenant.
You have the authority to act for mother to evict anyone living there but you have to first start out by giving them all a written 20 day notice to vacate. Then if they don't vacate within that 20 days, you can file a formal eviction action in the courts to get a judgment and writ that the sheriff will execute to force them to leave.
Once the 20 day notice expires, you can file the unlawful detainer action with the Superior court clerk.
The clerk sets a hearing date and you are responsible for having the tenant served by the sheriff or constable. At the hearing date, the judge will hear from both sides and then issue an order granting you a judgment and issuing a writ of execution for any costs including reasonable attorney's fees (if you hired an attorney, which isn't mandatory).
After the writ is issued, you can have the sheriff serve it on the tenant 5 days later and forcibly evict them if they haven't vacated.
